VOTERS ARE WOtfftlEd A Oraat Scarcity of Official Baltota Xx lit* In South Dakota. PIERRE, S. D.,Oct. 27.—The chances are now .hat South Dakota will not be able to clear up the muddle that con fronts her in the matter of ballots print ed according to the new ballot law. Tuesday the secretary of state accepted the resignation of Wood, one of the Democratic nominees for congress. Half of the ballots were printed when the resignation was accepted and now they will have to be reprinted. The law re quires that the ballots shall be in the hands of the county auditors at least ten days before election. Even now the new ballots could be printed by that time, but the Prohibitionists have ap plied for a writ of certiorari to compel the secretary of state to show cause why he refuses to put the Prohibs on the of ficial ballot. The order is returnable on Thursday, and if they win the case the names will have to be printed on the tickets. Thus it will be a physical impossibility to have the ballots printed in the time allowed by law.
